JF, School Admissions


All children of school age who reside in the city are entitled to attend the public schools, as well as certain children who do not reside in the city but who are admitted under school committee policies relating to nonresident students or by specific action of the school committee.

Advance registration for prospective kindergarten students will take place in the school year preceding enrollment. Every student seeking admission to school for the first time must present a birth certificate or equivalent proof of age acceptable to the principal, proof of vaccination and immunizations as required by the state and the school committee. Proof of residency or legal guardianship may also be required by the school administration.
